What platform? Some have symbol mapping.

But yes actual orders must of course go to a specific expiration. You could chart a continuous contact if your platform supports symbol mapping.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

HI

I use Ninja and Multicharts for auto.
MC has the symbol mapping.
Thanks for the info.

Would that load the current contract and send the order signal to the appropriate contract ?

thanks

You can set up the mapping to do that. You specify the chart symbol and the symbol that should be used at the broker for trading.
